Map 3D scale status bar in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

A - answer AutoCAD Map 3D (by default) and AutoCAD Civil 3D (optionally) displays the current vertical exaggeration, view scale, 2D/3D view, section plane elevation and other data in the drawing status bar.

Status bar (CZ version)

To toggle this information - i.e. to disable it in Map, resp. enable it in Civil - use the command/variable MAPSTATUSBAR.

To be able to show this information, you have to make the drawing status bar visible - right-click on the AutoCAD status bar and check the option "Drawing status bar". Applies to versions 2011, 2012 and higher.

Use registry settins for older versions of Civil.
